Real understanding and first-hand experience

Built by the Scott family to serve their wealth and the wealth of families like yours, Sandaire brings deep knowledge to your family’s unique needs.

Our story is your story.

While every family of wealth has their own distinct story, we all share pivotal moments that form part of our family lore, whether in recent times or the distant past. Times of triumph, of tough choices and pioneering paths taken. It’s what makes each family wonderfully unique, but it is also a common bond, irrespective of whether wealth is situated at the first or fifth generation of its lifecycle.

Our history.

Sandaire’s journey began over a century ago with the pioneering approach and spirited personalities of the Provincial Insurance Company. A path that three generations later – following the sale of Provincial – led to the formation of a family office to meet the investment needs of the Scott family. As expertise widened, so did our offer, creating today’s multi-family office working with extraordinary families to manage their multigenerational wealth needs.








The Provincial Insurance Company is founded by Sir James Scott in Manchester.

Provincial moves from Bolton to its new Head Office, Sand Aire House in Kendal, Cumbria.

The Scott brothers invite distinguished economist John Maynard Keynes to provide investment advice. A year later he joins the Provincial Board.

Provincial had grown to employ 2,200 staff with a turnover in excess of £350m. Offices through the UK, plus Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and Kenya.

Sandaire is founded by Alex Scott to manage the wealth of the family following the sale of Provincial.

James Fleming (L) joins Sandaire as Chief Executive and Warwick Newbury (R) as Chairman.

Sandaire builds on its investment office service, launching private equity and real estate businesses.
